Deep River, CT |
My Orthopedic Surgeon was pushing neck fusion and I just wasn't ready for that and wanted a 2nd opinion to see if I had overlapping issues. What a world of difference & a refreshing change even after my first appointment. Great personality, fun to work with even when in a lot of pain. She has a lot...more
